"May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short"

An Open Letter To Coffee

Alright coffee,

Here's the thing. I feel like this relationship is a tad bit... one-sided. I wish it was more co-dependent, but let's be real here, if I stopped drinking you today would you even notice?

You are one of my first thoughts in the morning. You're an important part of most of my busiest days. And you're important part of my daily ritual in my life.

Some days I think that it would be easier to just quit our relationship. That it would be a lot healthier for me and my new life style. I think how great my life would be without depending on you.

But I've seen people who have quit you before and I don't appreciate the side effects. These people were cranky and whiny without you by their side. They didn't know how to function without having you as part of their everyday world. So I've come to the conclusion that we just need to stick together no matter what.

I need your assistance and your support in my life. You are the fortitude that helps me make it through the rough days in my life. You have been there through out all of my difficult days. Coffee, you were even there when I lived in the library studying my brains out for my final exams.

Quitting you isn't so simple. You see, if I skipped out on coffee in some of my earliest mornings I would drag myself around campus like a zombie. No one would want to tolerate me and my weary words without you. People would tell me that I need to go back to you and realize how better my life is with you, coffee, in it. They would plead for me to get back with out and quit being so negative.

To be honest, I've tried drinking tea instead for a few short weeks, but the relationship just isn't the same. Tea just doesn't have the positive influence on my life that I was hoping that I would have.

It has been make known to me that no matter the day, month, season, or stage of my life, that your presence is necessary. Even though we've had our ups and our downs, coffee, I really do appreciate the little things that you do for me. Without you, my life would be very cold and dark.

I love and appreciate all that you do for me.

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
